Sophoclesedited and translated by Diane Rayor ’80

Rayor, who was awarded an honorary degree from CC in 2010, is a classics professor at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. Sophocles’ Antigone comes alive in this new translation that has
been called “accurate yet accessible,” and helps bring to life the play’s inherent theatricality. Rayor provides an analytical introduction and comprehensive notes. The story, which centers on a highly charged struggle between the individual and the state, has powerful implications for ethical and political situations today.
